To my fellow ladies:
Forget what our society has told you. Release your mind of what social media makes you believe you should have. Let go of the longing to be enough.
For every mean girl, jackass guy, or collection of people who made you believe there is something wrong with you, I offer you the truth.
You are perfect. Just as you are. Yes, you have flaws and imperfections. But they are beautiful and unique. A combination as unique as you was not created by chance. It was intentional - a masterpiece that cannot be replicated. You are one in 8 billion.
You are the most beautiful when you are yourself. You are the most talented when you follow your heart's desire; when you silence the noise that points you in their direction. You are smartest when you speak your mind, and the best to be around when you show up, just as you are.
Our world went wrong it leading us to believe that 'normal' was something to desire; that fitting in was the way to a life well lived. It is in creating your own path that you learn all that you were meant to, that you touch the world in all the ways you were destined for.
Your greatness is in your uniqueness. Your beauty is not just in your smile, but in your laugh, your heart, your brain, and your passion.You have a gift, a purpose, and a point for being the only one like you in a crowded sea of 8 billion people.
The truth is that you were born to be you. It may be hard to understand sometimes, but trust that there is a purpose. When you let your true self shine, you will find your way.
You are brave.
You are bold.
You are enough.
Just as you are.
